Busy/Lazy

Getting lots of work done on the project but not alot of time on the web to spend here. I should be riding it in a month or two. I guess I could ride it sooner, like this afternoon, but I couldn't stop. Need to get a few more things and make a whole lot more.

Not dead just busy



Well I'm not dead just swamped busy, between work and doing part of a top end and our 20th anniversary, not much time to piss away on the web.
Anyway here's a few pics from our Montana trip, stopping for a cold soda at the Dixon bar and a crappy panorama from the Swan valley looking east into the Bob Marshall wilderness.

Flat tires suck

I met the rider of this very nice '74 BMW R90/6 yesterday, its all original and a great runner, he picked up a screw and maybe something else and the bike is now lounging in my yard. Its nice to see other riders packing tools and other suplies to fix there bikes on the road.
A close up of the BING carb, nice clean bike overall, great engineering.

More Push Rods show and shine...

My buddy Butch M nice little ride, he put a 350hp 327cid all cammed up with a 5 speed behind it and now its a little squirly, nice clean ride.


Matt from the local indy shop had his drag bike there along with an electric powered bicycle project, nice old iron head that goes like a raped ape.


An English Ford drag car, damn nice rig.


Lots of great rides.




A shot from the stands, the show is held in the Historic Olympic Stadium in Hoquaim, there were over 150 rigs, from the very early 1900's to new, traditional rides to overdone billet bullshit, they got something for everyone. Great show, check it out next year if your around. One of the best parts was it was FREE to walk in and check out the rides, you cant beat a deal like that.


Firing up the old Ford

I wish I had more time to get more pics, not just of this one but of a lot of other rigs. This fella fired it up several times durring the few hours I was there. After I shot this video I asked his permission to post it here, he told me " that would be wonderful".

Push Rods Show and Shine....

I got in the shop early yesterday morning and got some work done so I could get away and check this out. This is my hometowns biggest car show and I've never been, they have a Friday night get together that I usualy hit after work but man have I been missing the big show. Its put on but the Push Rods of Hoquiam CC http://www.pushrods.org/index.htm . Next year I'll have my project bike there finished or not.

I love me some blue oval.


Real clean and lunch is served.



I love the front brakes on this cool ride.


Close enough to call perfect, could use a different front end.



More blue oval goodness, I shot video of the guy starting this 1 ton.

Test no2

and it works, this is a pic of the new quick change tool post that I put on my lathe last weekend, what a great time saver. I worked on a cap today for a while, so it should be listed here in the next week. I should have put one of these on years ago.

WTF a little rant for Saturday morn

So the weathers been nice and there are lots of bikes out and thats great BUT I have noticed a trend that is killing me. One of my peaves is apehangers and a windshield, and now they're everywhere, and the worst part is most of the bars are taller than the window WTF! Figure out who you want to be! I wonder if this is a new h@g trend. Someone let me know.

There are no pics for this post, they would be far to horrid to post, I do have some ethics.

Thanks for stopping by, I may have pic tomorrow, I'm going to try and post mobile with my cell.

A little update

on the Smoking gun. I got a chance to get it out of the living room for an hour or two yesterday. I wont be using a the solo, I just stuck it up there to look. I need to finish the oil bag mounts and get them welded, then its onto the brakes. Its coming along slowly, mosly because of having to work alot lately and thats nothing to bitch about.

Sunday, May 10, 2009

Cool pic

I saw on one of the news recyclers pages, the pic is a APF file. To bad its not leagal in WA, I'll get caught some day and thats life.


I got some welding on my oil tank done yesterday, got the ends tacked on and thats about it. I've been working on a top sEcrect project and think I may finish it today, some welding, a little pounding and some grind and polish, if not today, sometime this week.

I picked up a new-to-me masher yesterday at a yard sale, 8lb sledge for $3. You dont need lots of money to collect tools and make cool shit just keep an eye out for them at the right places.

Thanks for stopping by.

Another Sunday ride

Pics from last Sunday. My Bride, Daughter and I took a ride up to Merryman Falls. A nice short ride and the falls are right along side the county road, most people drive right by and never see them.





Cutting firewood and taking care of some other chores this weekend, the weather is cool and good for working but I still wish we were riding.

HAPPY EASTER.......

A little update, the Flyrite is a roller now, the neckcups came in last week and my son and I got them put in, I cut some spacers for the front wheel and its on too, woo hoo. I have been working on the oil bag a little but my day job has left little time to work on things during the week. When the weather gets good again, I'll roll it outside and get some pics, maybe I has the oil bag so I can put it on to see what it looks like.
------------------------------
So yesterday I took the bride and daughter for a ride, I have kicked around an idea of putting a small run together, something similar to what the El Diablo was from Cali or the Gypsy rum on the Eastcoast, we checked out a location and I think it will be great, even if I am the only mofo on the mountain. Its pretty remote by most standards, the cell phone coverage is so sporadic that I would be driving and get text from my son that he had sent an hour before, its a great place. Anyway I know a few guys that will go and may even post this on a few boards. More later, but if you are interested in coming or helping out get ahold of me.

There are 3 campgrounds in the area, we only got to 2 of them, this is my favorite.

The shelter, located almost in the center of the campground.


A larger camping spot, this is one of about 8 areas.

Bomb shoots, his and hers. These are maintained pretty well.


Skinny dipping anyone?

A few large spruce trees in the campground, man my daughter is getting big, funny how fast they grow up.




My love and I hanging out on a picknick table looking at the river after enjoying a picknick lunch.


The moss is longer tham my whiskers up here. This is in the campground.





A pic of the river at a lower campground.
